The International Day of Action on Big Biomass will take place on the 21st of October 2022 and you are invited to take part!

The aim of the day is to raise awareness of the global environmental and social impacts of burning forest biomass on an industrial scale, by holding an international event that involves groups from all over the world. To get a taste of what the day of action is all about, see here for a round up of last year’s event.

What happens on the Day of Action? What is done on the day is decided by each group taking part (you!). It could take the form of a webinar, a community event, a protest, a publication – anything! Participating groups choose their own specific target and issues to focus on for the day, depending on what is relevant to their geographical area and campaign. The only requirement is that groups keep the focus on industrial-scale “big biomass” and maintain messaging consistent with the Biomass Delusion Statement.

The day of action takes place as a “wave” across the world, passing through time zones, over 24 hours. EPN coordinates the groups participating by putting together a timetable of events and creating the “wave”. Please share your plans with sophie[at]environmentalpaper.org so that we can do this.

Want to take part but don’t have the capacity to organise an event? You can still take part by taking a photo of yourself with the message “Don’t let our future go up in smoke!”

To link everything happening around the world make sure to use the hashtag #BigBadBiomass on the 21st of October to post about your activities and share your photos.
